Dental health during pregnancy can be affected by morning sickness. Pregnancy (especially your first) can be hard enough as it is. The morning sickness…vomiting, retching, upchucking, puking, throwing up…whatever you call it, it can be horrible.
Extreme morning sickness can lead to damaged tooth enamel and an increased risk of tooth decay. This is thanks to the stomach acids that remain on your teeth after being sick.
The good news is there are some things you can do at home to prevent additional dental issues during your pregnancy as a result of morning sickness!
